Texas Senate passes bill that no longer requires schools teach about slavery, the KKK, women's suffrage

 

(Meredith) – The Texas Senate passed a bill Friday that will no longer require public schools to teach about slavery nor about the Ku Klux Klan’s ideologies and actions as “morally wrong.”

Senate Bill 3 eliminates a requirement that students be taught the “history of white supremacy, including but not limited to the institution of slavery, the eugenics movement, and the Ku Klux Klan, and the ways in which it is morally wrong.”

The bill passed 18-4 in the Republican-led Senate.The bill cuts some two dozen curriculum requirements, including the study of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The works of United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez were also among the cuts, as are Susan B. Anthony’s writings about the women’s suffragist movement. Teachings of Native American history were also cut.   Read More

The California Geological Survey has updated the Tsunami Risk Zones for the first time in 12 years

 

For the first time in more than a decade, the state has remapped the tsunami evacuation zones for California. The Bay Area could be in grave danger if an earthquake-driven tsunami hits our shores. 

Preparing for natural disasters is what many of us do in the Bay Area. Now, state geologists say a once-in-a-lifetime tsunami could inundate more of the Bay Area than first thought.

The Bay Area learned first hand what the force of a tsunami can do when an earthquake struck Japan in 2011, sending strong waves surging into Santa Cruz Harbor, leaving heavy damage.

In 1964, a M9.2 earthquake in Alaska sent a tsunami which did heavy damage on the California coast and parts of the North Bay. Read More
